What's next? I want a new lens, but not sure which one. Mostly between $100-200. I'm a newbie, though. Not sure which lens is good for the price range.

I would suggest either the Nikon 55-200mm or the Sigma 70-300 DG APO, more likely the Sigma for it's better macro feature.

I would certainly agree with Rey-

The Nikkor 55-200mm lens is a real "best buy" kind of lens. It is a good lens, fairly small in size, there fore easy to carry with you, and quite sharp. I get a lot of use out of my Nikkor 55-200mm lens.

I have attached two sample photos taken with this lens for you perusal.

Dont forget the 50mm 1.8D. Its great for low light and portraits and it costs about $100.

To answer this question effectively we need to know 3 things, you've answered 2 (budget, current equipment).

3) What do you want to do that you can't do (or can't do as well as you'd like) with the equipment that you currently posess?

Best.
